Book Review: The Flight of the Griffin by C.M. Gray & GIVEAWAY!

In August, I reviewed the novel, Shadowland by C.M. Gray, so I was excited when he asked me to review his new book, The Flight of the Griffin. Once again, Gray has written a wonderful fantasy that sweeps you away to another land.

Book Synopsis:

Living in their old boat ‘The Griffin’ four young characters and their guide become the unlikely heroes at the end of time when a burglary sets them on the path to finish the ‘Last great Spell’ - a spell to stop the balance of the World tipping into Chaos...

They become the Magician, Thief, Priest and Fighter when a magical book guides them upon a quest that pits them against magic, demons and ‘The Hawk,’ an evil hunter of men.

Join a race against time to find three crystal skulls that must be brought together, while all the forces of Chaos try everything to stop them!

My Review:

The Flight of the Griffin is a tale about four young boys chosen for a quest to restore balance between Order and Chaos. Each boy receives a special power that aids the group on their journey, and a guide named, Mahra, who can transform from a young girl into a panther or owl. Mahra's ability to change is a great help on their journey. A greedy merchant, merciless bounty hunter, and demons are following the boys in hopes of stopping them before the group can reach their goal.

I truly enjoyed this magical story and the characters that author C.M. Gray brought to life. Along with traditional magicians, we meet sweet creatures called the Hidden, a caravan of entertaining travelers, and a princess eager to experience greatness beyond her ordinary life. I thought the griffin was a magnificent creature and loved its evolvement from a boat to a flying beast. Gray does a superb job in maintaining excitement and mystery throughout the adventurous story. He captures the innocence and bravery of the boys and how they are each a piece in the important puzzle of Order.
